Kudos to blocking certain sites in the public library. While the internet can be a super information highway of knowledge and education, it has also been corroded by sexual predators, hackers, identity theft, chat rooms, mindless video games, pornography and the list goes on...As far as it being up to teachers, librarians and parents to teach the kids how to use it socially...let's be real! The kids these days will do what they want to do. Unfortunately with both parents having to be in the workforce to support the family and with more and more single parent families arising, time spent with the kids becomes less and less. There is no time to develop family relationships and education doesn't seem to go past class room. Gone are the days of after school activities.
